Why stay here ...

We are an established site in beautiful, rural Suffolk that has been welcoming caravanners for over 40 years. Many of our regular guests would have been greeted by my father when they stayed here with their parents. Now they visit with their own children to enjoy our friendly site again and create new family memories.

Our 0.75 acre site is set on an arable farm and has plenty of land for dogs to run around in. We also have a large unfenced lake that is ideal for coarse fishing. It's a perfect spot for those looking for peace and quiet - but there is plenty for nature and history lovers to see as well!

We have hard standing on site for those who need it, and recycling facilities. The village of Woolpit is well serviced with a church, shops, two public houses and a good bus service. The site has easy access to the A14 and it takes about 15 minutes to drive to the historical town of Bury St Edmunds. The pretty towns of Lavenham and Southwold are also easy to reach by car.

Martin looks forward to welcoming you to his CL.

Pleasant short stay

This was a quick weekend away for us . The first positive point was that we were allowed to stay on for a little lunch as we got up early and had a walk and visit to Lavenham. We'd gone by 1.00 pm, the site was quiet, but we'd had a weekend away. Thank You Martin The site is what i'd call basic with electric - a nicely mown plot with recycling - which is exactly what we like. As it was a short visit, we had to work out where to pay (the bungalow on your left as you enter the inductrial estate, which is nowhere near as bad as it sounds) - This also makes access incredibly easy - when on site we couldn't see it and certainly didn't hear anything. The site is near to the A14, which is great for access and allows quick progress when popping out, We did notice the road noise the first night going to bed, but I didn't the second. I'd say we adapted very quickly to its presence. East Anglia is not a place we'd normally visit, big walkers and like the hills. Therefore we found the walking a little bland, but the villages are nice, and we enjoyed our visits to Bury St edmunds and Lavenham. Woolpit is worth a short walk around and explore for those not wanting anything too energetic. Is there anything I would recommend for improvement - not really I'd have to be very picky. Some of the amenities could have been labelled better - not clear what we could recycle and the chemical toilet disposal is just off the footpath behind the hedge. If we'd had caught Martin earlier, I'm pretty sure he'd have told us - when he came onto site. Would I recommend the site - certainly

Great site

Easy access from A14 and very little road noise. Nice flat site with plenty of room and EHU strategically placed. HS for winter looks like. Large lake with fish in, easy access to village and local amenities. Good communication from Owner who met us on arrival and pointed facilities out.

Would recommend.

We had a really nice welcome. The site is mostly level and beautifully kept. The surrounding scenery and lake are delightful and it was easy to walk to the village of Woolpit. There is a plethora wildlife and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this site. We will be returning in the future.
